Introducing Google Reader Play

Google just announced the public beta  for Google Reader Play over on their blog.  I've been playing with it, and it looks like it could might be a useful way to find new content. You can try it here.

Do you use Google Reader for your RSS feeds? If you go look at it right now, you'll see that one of the menu options on the left is "Explore". Under that menu you will see a selection of blog posts that Google thinks might interest you.  The list is generated based on the feeds you are already following. It seems to me that "Explore" was adapted for  Google Reader Play.

I've looked it over, and most of the suggestions are images. Great. Google Reader was good at finding text, not images.  This could be an interesting new toy.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
